  • "This book is absolutely wonderful - I just read four passages out loud to the Word staff - to actual applause!"

    Mark Ellen, The Word
  • "Wise, funny and loving - a brilliant memoir about Britpop and possibly the best rock biography since Nik Cohn's AwopBopAlooBop-AlopBamBoom"

    Tony Parsons
  • "Funny, readable and filled with proper gossip. Most importantly, it's a perceptive and tenacious look at what it was really like to be a girl among the blokes in that era"

    Alexandra Heminsley, The New Review, Independent on Sunday
  • "Wener charts the story of her rise from suburban schoolgirl to 1990s pin-up with Indie group Sleeper. Her tone is warm, funny and self-deprecating - and she's not afraid to prick a few egos along the way"

    Daily Mirror
  • "An amusing insight into the banality of band life, and a cautionary tale about the cost of getting what you always wanted"
